"Love: A Holy Command" is an inspirational treasury of quotations from the works of Oswald Chambers. Chambers wrote a great deal about love, as Jesus declared it the greatest commandment for followers of God. Chambers thoughts on the subject will inspire and challenge you in your walk. Includes reflection questions for personal response and devotions.
The Bible reminds you time and time again to love Him, but that can be a complex and even mysterious instruction to follow. Let Oswald Chambers, author of My Utmost for His Highest, help you put it all into biblical perspective: "Total surrender to 'the love of Christ' is the only thing that will bear fruit in your life. And it will always leave the mark of God's holiness and His power." Compiled and edited by Julie Ackerman Link, Love: A Holy Command, helps you sift through the wisdom of Scripture and the insights of Oswald Chambers, a little bit at a time, to nurture God's holiness in your life as you learn to love Him more.
Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) is best known for the classic devotional My Utmost for His Highest.
